Cape PowerCats formed when the opportunity came along for our team to acquire one of the best Power Catamaran hulls designed to date. Our first recreational model, The 3500, will sit on a well tried and tested design from the drawing table of Chris White. Chris started on this project in 2004 with Russell Hunt of Multihull Development, Inc. Production of what eventually became known as the Buzzards Bay 34 began in 2006. An accomplished multihull designer and world cruiser, Chris brought an overriding concern for offshore seakeeping, performance, and practicality, clearly seen in the resulting hull design.
The design priorities included a smooth, flat ride, regardless of an afternoon chop kicking up, and a closeness to nature from both a shallow draft and planet-friendly fuel economy. The Cape PowerCats 3500 has a distinctly “big boat” feel yet the wide placement of her outboards and her lightweight give her, astonishing maneuverability and easy handling.
